Where’s the outrage over Netanyahu trying to interfere in the US election? | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Where’s the outrage over Netanyahu trying to interfere in the US election?

For the last four years, there’s been a national debate regarding the scope of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The issue might end up dominating discourse in 2020 as well. Last month, intelligence officials warned House members that Russia is allegedly meddling in an effort to get Trump reelected.

Concerns about Putin’s impact on U.S. elections has generated countless articles and wall-to-wall cable news coverage. It also fueled an impeachment investigation. However, blatant election interference from other countries is certainly not treated in the same way.

This contradiction was on display over the weekend, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed AIPAC’s annual policy conference via video feed. Netanyahu repeatedly referenced Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders, who skipped the conference and claimed that the lobbying group promotes bigotry. At the most recent Democratic debate, Sanders called Netanyahu a “reactionary racist.”

“We were all reminded a few days ago that there are forces who seek to break our alliance,” said Netanyahu, “Last year, those who came to AIPAC were accused of dual loyalty. This year, AIPAC was accused of providing a platform for bigotry. These libelous charges are outrageous.”

Netanyahu wasn’t the only Israeli official to attack Sanders at the conference. Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said, “We don’t want Sanders at AIPAC. We don’t want him in Israel. Anyone who calls our prime minister a ‘racist’ is either a liar, an ignorant fool or both.”

Responding to Danon’s comments on Face the Nation, Sanders said he was calling for a more evenhanded foreign policy. “I am not anti-Israel…but what we need in this country is a foreign policy that not only protects Israel but deals with the suffering of the Palestinian people as well,” said Sanders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Outrageous", MY ASTROLABE, Mr. Prime Minister!!

Bernie Sanders has no chance for the Dementocrat nomination, thanks greatly to the interference from AIPAC, which believes that a potentially dementia-stricken Joe Biden, whose campaign gaffes are so intense as to be absoflippinglutely unbelievable, is a far better candidate for President (for Israel), than is Sanders, with whom I am absolutely aligned in his call for a more "even handed" approach to the US's Middle East policy.

I would suggest that our Dementocrat brothers and Sisters are looking at a "brokered convention", into which Hillary Clinton, a two-time party "favorite/Failure" will try to re-insert herself as a Candidate.

IF, in fact, Clinton's candidacy is for the Vice-Presidency, whoever winds up at the top of the ticket, had better be wearing their Kevlar undies; hire a food-taster; and get the best private security people available in the world; because after the inauguration, should they clinch the win in November, they are going to need them.
